Gasoline in the airbox, muffler (2006 Suzuki Vinson ATV)

Filled the gas tank and went four wheeling..after about 20 minutes of riding the ATV quit and would not start. It wou8ld crank, but no fire. Later when we were trouble shooting we found the airbox to be full of gasoline as well as the muffler. The gas tank was empty except for the reserve. We set the fuel selector to reserve and the atv started right up, blowing fuel clear across the garage that had been in the muffler. I believe the carb needle valve stuck and that allowed all the fuel in the tank to run through the carb and subseguently into the muffler and airbox while trying to start the machine. Anything else I should check? Any help wouold be appreciated...

Usually when the needle and seat are stuck, the gas will run out of an overflow on the side of the carb, unless those are plugged for some reason, then obviously the gas will flow where ever it can. is the machine 2 or 4 stroke?,

Sounds to me like a battery and/or charging issue. But could be a loose connection somewhere too.

Took 1/2 hr to get 20 $ worth of gas into tank because of air lock ? also now my gas gauge is not moving from empty ? 09 Caliber

That's about three minutes per gallon. Are you quite sure it isn't leaking out? Air locking can be handled with a piece of hose that reaches into the pipe but leaves room for filling. Just be sure it isn't soluble in gasoline or can be pushed into the tank.

Gasoline runs through carb and out muffler

The needle valve isn't seating and sealing off the flow of fuel, you also need to check your oil to make sure it doesn't have fuel mixed in with the oil, it can ruin your engine, quick fix install an inline fuel shut off valve and turn it off when you shut the engine off, and this will fix the problem.

I have 2005 500 suzuki atv

Could be flooding. That usually only occurs when you have excess fuel lighting off in the exhaust. I have seen it happen on cars when the timing is way off. I would pull the carb and check the float level and replace the float valve.
